Kennebunk Openings

Posted on

Kennebunk Retreat now has 2 openings. Unfortunately, 2 members are unable to attend. If there is anyone who is interested please contact Sue Molin.
Because of the room situation at Kennebunk, there is only one room available so we can take a single or if 2 are interested they would need to be roommates.
Please contact me as soon as possible as the retreat is only a few weeks away.

Kulea Childcare Villages

Posted on

Thank you, everyone, for your interest in this charity.  We have received 5 quilts so far!  Two members from the Kulea board visited my studio just before Christmas and were awe struck by your talent and generosity.  Please visit their Facebook page to see pictures.

Kulea is coming to MVQG!  Members from the Kulea Childcare Villages team will be at the January 2017 guild meeting.  They will have a table in the lobby so that you can get information about the organization.  Members will be dressed in their Kulea garb and will make a presentation to the guild at the meeting.

As a reminder, we will be making the formal presentation of donated quilts to Kulea at our May 2017 guild meeting.  I understand this is a month early and hope that you have enough time to finish your quilts.  Any size quilt is acceptable; however, the team is respectively asking for twin size quilts (approximately 60” x 86”).  Please contact me if you have any questions, comments or concerns.

Thank you, so much, for your interest in Kulea Childcare Villages!

A Note from Membership

Posted on Updated on

Thank you for your patience as we passed out the member packets as you checked in! If you were not at the meeting last night, your member packet will be in the mail to you shortly.

The Member Open Sew scheduled to be held this Saturday, October 22, at Aunt Mary’s Quilting Studio in Derry, NH has be cancelled due to a lack of interest.

Mary Kendall would like to get some feedback from members as to a day and time that works for a once a month Member Open Sew she can hold at her studio since Saturday does not seem to work.  She really wants to have one!  Please drop an email to me at with your suggestions.  Thanks!!!

Round Robin Update

Posted on

Greetings fellow quilters, The first set of rules for the Round Robin from Sept to June have been e-mailed to those who signed up. There is still time to join us. Having at least one more would make it easier for the exchange. (I love working with even numbers). If you know that you signed up and didn’t get the e-mail then please contact Marianne Karp or Layne Rando. Last years RR was a blast so we are really looking forward to this year’s quilts.

See you in Sept.

Marianne Karp
